Spring 2013 Public Policy Platform Newsletter

Thursday, May 30, 2013

In April, SCG presented Activating a New Partnership with City Hall: Los Angeles City Council Forum, setting a precedent by convening candidates and Council Members-elect before entering office. This served as part of SCG’s strategy to proactively establish strong working relationships with policymakers in our region.  

The Forum was the first time 32 nonprofit and philanthropic organizations—including lead partners the California Community Foundation and the Center for Nonprofit Management—as well as SCG members Community Partners, the Corporation for Supportive Housing, Liberty Hill Foundation, The Durfee Foundation, The James Irvine Foundation, The California Endowment and Weingart Foundation—came together to support a City Council forum of this kind. As a demonstration of power in numbers, a clear message was sent to our incoming public representatives about the strength and value of the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors in Southern California. 

You can experience the Forum through social media by checking out SCG's Storify or by viewing photos on our Facebook page. Video of the Forum can be viewed on the SCG website.
